I’m working on a presentation for Odd Salon called “Stories in Bones” and it will detail some of the stories that we can tell from animal lives by looking at their bones.
Example: A mammoth that died with injuries from a mammoth-ivory spear tells a story of humans using tools from the very animals they killed to kill more.
A toothless predator’s jaws are grown over with bone, meaning that it survived without teeth and its family probably helped it.
Important historical examples are best! I’ll probably include one human story, but mostly it’s about animals.
